META POWER TR RIDE
Super Trail, Pure Trail Bike, Trail Centres, TR, Trail. We certainly use the word in many contexts! Here is our META POWER TR. Quite simply our version of what Trail means; up, down, jump, play and repeat, again and again.
This is the lively, responsive and impulsive POWER that we wanted! It's the perfect bike to get the most fun out of on the majority of trails around the world!
With 150mm travel on the front and 140mm on the back, it's made for those who believe that having a playful bike whatever the terrain is the most important thing!
Like all new generations of META POWER, the META POWER TR is equipped with the latest Shimano engine, the EP8. It's quieter, more powerful and more energy efficient. And when we talk about the new Shimano EP8, we mean a new 630Wh battery too. For an all-day adventure or just a few laps at your local trail centre, whatever you please.
This META POWER TR has been designed to be very different to the META POWER. For example, the geometry has been specifically worked upon for the intended use of the bike. The seat tube angle (77.5°) and the head tube angle (64.5°) are relatively straight for optimal pedalling position when tackling the most technical climbs.
A new kinematic has been calculated for this one. It's built around the "Contact System 4bar Linkage," which is a system designed to bring both more dynamism and efficiency to pedalling. In addition, two positions are available on the rocker extension thanks to the "flip chip" and are therefore easily modifiable. This change affects the height of the bottom bracket and the head tube and seat tube angles, therefore completely changing the behaviour of the bike. You then have the choice between a lively and reactive bike, or a stable bike optimized for the most demanding descents. Whatever position is chosen, the kinematics have been designed to enable excellent grip on small impacts and comfort during the suspension travel.
As always, the finishing details have also occupied the time of our engineers. The engine mount has been designed to use one of the advantages of the EP8 - its reduced size. The engine guard has high impact resistance. It's better integrated into the general line of the bike thanks to a right-side engine cover specific to META POWER. The charging plug is located on the engine mount for easy access. The new, more compact chain guide is also attached directly to the engine mount. Finally, the routing on the chain stays has been worked on to avoid friction with the frame paint. All of these details make the difference.
In our offices in Andorra, South Africa, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or Chile, many staff have already decided to make the META POWER TR!
Let's give POWER to the TRAIL!
META POWER TR RIDE Sand
This timeless "Sand" META TR 29 RIDE blends into any environment but stands out from the crowd!
With this RIDE model there's everything you need here to go on a great adventure! The SRAM SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain will help you tackle the toughest climbs. We opted for short 160mm cranks to make pedalling up steeper trails easier thanks to more ground clearance. When going downhill, the power of the SRAM Guide T 4-piston brakes will guarantee confidence in stopping power. Trust is also provided by RockShox suspension. The 35 Gold fork with 35mm stanchions performs well, provides good stiffness and precision, and is easy to adjust. The Deluxe Select+ shock allows easy and quick adaption of the behaviour of the bike in accordance with body shape, level of riding and what the day ahead looks like. The reinforced SPANK Spike Race 33 rims are perfect for e-bikes. Finally, the new SHIMANO EP8 engine and 630Wh battery means it's possible for this model to go wherever and whenever.

BATTERY RECYCLING: In partnership with SHIMANO, COMMENCAL supports a voluntary battery recycling program for ebike batteries. For each META POWER sold COMMENCAL will contribute 7EUR to fundraising organisation COREPILE. This sum is paid through SHIMANO France. When your battery reaches the end of its life, it would be great if you could send it back to us for recycling. Contact us for more info on the procedure.
